The worst CSS practices - and how to avoid them

I love reading articles and snippets to find the latest and greatest in CSS, but the reality is that many of us are on growing teams, dealing with the (sometimes) harsh fact that not all of our developers are frontend developers. If there’s a way to get our CSS better in the long run, it’s not by doing the bleeding edge of things (and then providing fallback after fallback), it’s, instead, focusing on levelling up our current resources, displacing the worst that we see, today.

Since there are a few articles that articulate opinions on ‘worst practices’, let’s focus on the strategies we can use to displace those practices. The key components I recommend are training, style guides and code review.
